Upcoming Events

“But They Don’t Do the Reading!” Helping Students Read Productively for your Course

Tuesday, January 30, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

In this free-standing workshop, we will continue the discussion about accountability with an emphasis on helping students prepare readings in ways that will help them succeed in class. Participants will explore the wide variety of expectations for reading that students face as they move through their curriculum, including different genres, varying levels of engagement (e.g., skimming vs. reading closely), and different purposes. The workshop will also consider how instructors might make their unique expectations for reading transparent to students so that they are appropriately equipped for class.

Intensive Writing Roundtable and Breakfast

Friday, February 2, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Are you teaching an Intensive Writing course for the first time? Are you interested in teaching an IW course but not sure about what is involved? Are you an experienced IW instructor looking for new ideas? Do you worry about how to handle the paper load, how to best support international students, or how to integrate the writing process into your course? Please join experienced instructors from across the COAS disciplines and Campus Writing Program staff for an informal roundtable discussion and breakfast as we address these and other questions related to teaching an IW course. Participants will leave the roundtable with proven IW strategies as well as knowledge of support services available for instructors.

SOTL-Disciplinary-Based Approaches to Online Teaching and Learning

Friday, February 2, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Instructors tend to organize their online courses around specific content rather than around the mental moves they want students to make. As a result, their teaching efforts may focus on looking for more engaging or effective content or choosing new technological tools in the hopes of promoting student learning. We propose to integrate disciplinary-based approaches into the process of online teaching development to increase faculty motivation and agency. We will be researching the extent this influences the online learning results and the experience for students. Session participants will be able to try out parts of the bottleneck process and be invited to join in ongoing efforts to further this work.

This event is perfect for graduate students and postdocs in the academic job process or applying to campus positions.

Wednesday, February 7, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM, ROOM CHANGE: Wells Library 043

Academic job committees are increasingly requesting applicants submit a diversity statement.

Stereotype Threat and Implicit Bias: CIRTLCast

Thursday, February 8, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, Online

In the second of four events on women in STEM, we will define and characterize stereotype threat and implicit bias. We will assess the impact of gender bias in STEM teaching and learning. Lastly, we will discuss strategies for creating inclusive environments. Questions to consider include: What is stereotype threat? What is implicit bias? What are example practices that can reduce identity threats and bias in STEM teaching and learning interactions? What actions can be taken by institutions, departments, colleagues, and students to create inclusive environments?

SoTL Event - Flipped Learning: Roots, Research, and Future Directions

Friday, February 16, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, IMU - Georgian Room

Flipped learning (or "the flipped classroom") burst onto the national and international stage in the early part of the current decade, garnering huge popularity through books, workshops, and media articles. Its fast rise to prominence led to a common misconception that flipped learning is merely an educational fad, with no roots and no future, just like many other fads before it. In this talk we will debunk this myth by examining flipped learning research from three viewpoints.
